In my recent article, I suggested that you shouldn’t be hiring via recruiters or even getting your own HR to write a job advertisement.


Here is a good example, sent to me by someone in Toronto, Canada. It is from an advertisement on

“Strong work ethic (40-50 hour week)”

 Apparently, it is now measured in hours. Who writes these things?

UPDATE – August 12, 2009 – Someone posted a question on the Organizational Development group page in LinkedIn, asking how to quantify integrity.
